TRX Physical Therapy Exercises at Envision Sport Irvine Clinic


TRX Physical Therapy Exercises at Envision Sport Irvine Clinic

One unique feature about our Envision Sport Irvine clinic is our TRX equipment, used to help rehabilitate patients during physical therapy. TRX, which stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise, is great to use for a vast range of exercises in strength training, including shoulders, legs, and core. Below are some of the exercises you can use to strengthen your upper and lower body.

TRX ROWS Stand with feet about shoulder width apart and grab onto the TRX straps for support. Lean back a little, and turn on your abs to make sure that your back is straight. Before starting the exercise, make sure that your neck is relaxed and roll your shoulders back and then pull and squeeze your shoulder muscles together, and slowly lower yourself back down before the next repetition.

REPS 10, SET 2, 1X DAY




TRX SQUATS Start with legs hip-width apart, arms raised forward while gripping the TRX straps in front of the body, thumbs facing up. Ensure the weight and pressure of the body are on the heels rather than the toes before you lower the hips into a squat, making sure that your arms and back are straight the entire time with the legs forming a 90 degree bend. Press into the heel to help drive yourself back into the starting position.

REPS 10, SET 2, 1X DAY




TRX SINGLE LEG SQUAT Hold onto TRX handles for support as you shift your weight onto one leg. Once your balance is stable, begin squatting down on one leg and return back to starting position. This exercise should be felt in the glutes.

TRX LUNGES

Start with a narrow base and hold onto the straps for support. Engage abs and slowly bring one leg behind you. Keep your back straight while you use your rear foot to guide you down. Make sure that your knee in the front foot does NOT go over your toe. Then, push through the heel of your front foot to help you lunge up and then bring the rear foot back into starting position.

REPS 10, SETS 2, 1X DAY




TRX CURTSY LUNGES While holding on the TRX handles for support, step back with the leg behind you towards the right so the thighs cross as the knees bend into a curtsy. The front knee should be aligned with the front ankle during this exercise. This exercise should be felt in the glutes.

REPS 10, SETS 2, 1X DAY



TRX PLANKS Start off with your hands and feet on the ground. Bring back one leg at a time to put your feet in the TRX straps. Then using your hands (or forearms), bring your body up into a plank and straighten your legs. Make sure that your hands are in-line with your shoulders. Tighten your abs and keep your hips up during the exercise.

TRX T’S

Stand with feet about shoulder width apart and grab onto the TRX straps for support. Lean back a little, and turn on your abs to make sure that your back is straight. Before starting the exercise, make sure that your neck is relaxed and your shoulder blades are squeezed together. Pull the straps apart to the side in a T-shaped manner.
